Miss Ecuador, Katherine Espin, was crowned Miss Earth 2016 in Manila, Philippines just a short while ago. She is the 16th Miss Earth and the second woman from Ecuador to win the crown. The new Miss Earth is 23 years old and stands 1.72m tall. Miss Colombia, Michelle Gomes, was named Miss Earth Air. Hot favorite, Stephanie De Zorzi from Venezuela took home the Miss Earth Water title, while Miss Brazil Bruna Zanardo, was named Miss Earth Fire.
The delegates from Vietnam, Russia, Sweden and the United States of America made it to the top 8 before being eliminated after the first Question and Answer round. Misses South Korea, Northern Ireland, Italy, England, Mexico, Macau, South Africa and Australia completed the top 16.

Miss Moldova was chosen as the delegate with the Best Eco Video, while Miss Wales was announced as this year's ECO Warrior.
Hmmm, so glad I did not waste my time following Miss Earth this year. The results are odd again.
